Form 990-N—the ePostcard—can only be submitted electronically to the IRS. The IRS does not provide printouts or images of it that Candid can post and analyze. Instead, the IRS makes the information available through its Tax Exempt Organization Search, shown below. 

However, GuideStar incorporates Form 990-N data into the appropriate places in the filing organization’s nonprofit profile. 

The 990-N offers eight fields of information:

  • Tax period

  • EIN (Employer Identification Number)

  • Legal name/doing business as name

  • Mailing address

  • Principal officer's name and address

  • Confirmation that the organization's gross receipts are not greater than $50,000

  • Confirmation that the organization has or has not terminated 

  • Website URL, if the organization has a website
